    Default Big moves in the (very near!) future

    My wife and I are both 2006 graduates of the United States Naval Academy and have served around the world during that time period. I left the service 2 years ago to pursue evolving the roller lock platform and she has been active in the Reserves for quite some time.

    I'm exceptionally proud of the fact that she was just selected to be the Executive Officer of Reserve Naval Operations Support Center Fort Worth here in Texas. She's a fantastic officer and the people she's going to be working for and with are going to be blessed in the support she provides them. This is a "quick fill" position and even amidst the COVID-19 challenges the military is moving promptly. We found out about her selection on Wednesday and orders are currently being written for a mid-April arrival date. Yes, pack up and move in less than a month! We both chuckle about the fact that we thought we had completed our last Permanent Chance of Station (PCS) move, but we'll go where the Navy needs us.

    Fortunately this is not an extreme distance move but it comes with a lot of challenges. Over the next month we'll be selling the house and buying/renting another with all the fun paperwork associated with that. We'll also be moving the workshop down to Fort Worth and that too comes with an administrative burden. To most of you this will be transparent and it actually comes at a good time since we're working through supply chain challenges.

    We're going to stay engaged and keep you informed of our progress because it is both exciting and intimidating. You'll also see more on social media (especially Instagram) while we build our image a bit during this process. This is by no means a "good-bye" but a "great things are happening!" post. We're also going to be continuing our R&D and getting guns out to our influencers and first purchasers as promptly as possible.

    If you're in the Fort Worth area, we're looking forward to seeing you soon! If not, we're just an email or phone call away. Thanks for the continued support!

    2020 has turned out to be....weird. I think we can all agree to that as a starting point and go from there. I hope that everyone has weathered this particular storm and is ready for the rest of the year because I think it's going to continue to be a challenge.

    The previous moves my wife and I had planned did not pan out for a long list of reasons but we're pressing forward. I'm going to keep the production facility in Frisco, TX and the wife will be commuting to her job in Fort Worth. It's going to be a long year because of that but we've decided that's what is best for our children, our careers and my business.

    I'm recovering from surgery after tearing up my right knee in late March. I would not recommend needing medical assistance during a global pandemic because the stories I've got to tell are neither fun nor confidence building. But I had a great surgeon that came through and am now starting physical therapy to get back up on my feet (pun intended and delivered flawlessly so I aware myself 10 points).

    I'm going to provide a separate update on the MORE chassis, REV-5 development and our plans going forward but as I stated we're pushing forward. I've learned the most challenging times are usually when people learn the most and the best products are developed so we're going to stay the course. I'm looking forward to hearing how everyone is doing and lending an ear or helping anywhere I can.

    Hi Bill, Your last update prior to today was about 3 months ago. I hope all is well.
    Let me see if I understand what you have posted:
    You have your own firearm business in Frisco, TX. You left the military service.
    Your wife has a senior military position at the JRB Ft Worth and commutes over 100 miles in DFW traffic each day to work.
    Are any of your current or future products based on or compatible with any Heckler and Koch firearms or production methods?
    What input, feedback, or actions are you asking of members of this forum?

    You're spot on with your capture of the situation. I should have posted more on here over the past 3 months but most of it would have come across as complaining and just extremely bad news. I just needed to get through that period and we're making progress.
    To answer your questions:
    - Yes, several of our current products are compatible with HK firearms such as our MP5 and MP5k ACR stock adapters. We're working on more in addition to the traditional MP5 models we plan to offer on a limited basis in late July.
    - Yes, all of our products are centered around traditional HK internals and taking them to the next evolutionary level without losing the inherent reliability of the system.
    - Our future production methods are going to be a little different than the traditional approach, but still feature the reliable internals we all know and love

    Lastly and most importantly, I'm going to start sharing our development of the modular chassis system with the forum and asking 1) what capabilities people desire, 2) what material they think best for the chassis and 3) what future capabilities would they like us to make allowance for? Very shortly I'm going to start showing our drafts since we've already laid out the key performance indicators with our design firm. I should have done this last year but feared for my intellectual property and kept things hush hush. With the response we've received I know that was a mistake so I'm resetting our development, marketing, manufacturing and production processes. There was a lot that went into that decision and it was difficult to make but the community is absolutely worth it.

    At the end of the day, I'm trying to make the MP5 more modular since it was really the trailblazer in that realm. I'm learning as I go and wear a lot of hats (finance, development, coordination, licensing, fulfillment, etc) to the point I realized we tried to do too much last year. This approach lets us engage with the community and truly give them what they want.

    You'll see that input, feedback and action request over the next few days and weeks via polls and more postings. In short, I want to know what people want so we can make it happen!
